Eagles bounced by Giants in final regular season game 27-10

The Eagles finished their regular season playing their division rivals in the New York Giants. Early in the first quarter, the Eagles lost their 1,000-yard-wide receiver in A.J. Brown to a knee injury, after he turned the ball over. Philadelphia already had D. Smith and D. Swift resting, due to injuries that they suffered last week. With the loss of Brown, the Eagles' offense struggled to get any productive drives going in the first half and walked into the locker room down 24-0. Philadelphia decided to take Hurts as well as majority of the starters out the game. Hurts finished 7 out of 16 for 55 yards and 1 touchdown. With the backups in for the remainder of the game, the Eagles had a few productive drives but eventually closed out the season in defeat.
